What do I need to know about living in Bangalore?

Live in Bangalore? Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Bangalore, they said:

"Surround yourself with positive people, get your support from them should you need it. India is at times challenging, exciting and in its own way crazy but if you are willing to be open to the differences then you will be rewarded with experiences way beyond what you would expect. I love India which is why we have returned here for a second time," said another expat in Bangalore.

When we asked people living in Bangalore about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:

"In 2010 we moved from New Zealand to Bangalore for my wife to take up a teaching role, along with us we brought our youngest son who was 9 at the time. We enrolled him in Trio World School (now Trio World Academy) where my wife was teaching. The school was a lot like being part of a large extended family, friendships were forged that have lasted till today and I expect beyond. At the time Trio being a International School following the Cambridge curriculum was an excellent fit and provided an incredible foundation for our son's future. Today Trio offers Cambridge and IB Curriculum's at Trio World Academy, ICSE Indian curriculum at Trio World School and world class kindergarten care at Trio Tots. I would absolutely recommend this school to parents wanting to educate their children in Bangalore," said another person in Bangalore.

When we asked people living in Bangalore what life is like and how people spend their time, they said:

"Bangalore is a large city which today is heralded as the IT capital of India, its a nice place to live, friendly people, a vibrant cultural environment. As with any city of this size you will find somewhere a supportive group of people with interests similar to your own. I am an avid nature photographer and I have quickly gathered around me people with information and interests willing to share their experiences. Indians are often willing to include ex-pats in their lives with a shared interest in food or other things. Getting invited to Indian Weddings, Engagement parties etc is common and you are feted as special," said another expat in Bangalore.

"Don't do it if you are looking for an international school that will offer a high quality global education," remarked another parent with kids at Inventure Academy in Bangalore.

"PLEASE take your time and look out for other schools, which can nurture your child in the child's well being, thus helping the child grow up well balanced with acedemics, sports, arts. Since we all have one childhood please attempt to make it special," explained one expat living in BANGALORE, India.
